ABOUT ME

I am a Korean-American-Danish actress, director, writer and creator based in Copenhagen, Denmark. 

Being a passionate storyteller, I thrive working with theatre as well as with screenwork. Both as an actress, director and creator, the story is always the core of my attention.

I was born in Korea and adopted to an American father and Korean mother. I have lived both in the US and in Denmark where I received classical training as an actress at the National Theatre School.

I work and create fluently in both languages.

On screen, I had have appeared in »The Bridge 4« in a recurring part as the murderer Susanne Winther. I first appeared in the Nordic Noir crime show »The Killing« and soon other Nordic shows followed with guest appearances in »The Protectors«, »DNA«, »Below the Surface« and »Follow the Money«.

In the spring 2020, I will appear in a key role in the new Swedish crime series »Bäckström - Can you die twice«.

 

In theatre, I have worked with contemporary, experimental pieces as well as classical and musical theatre on both small experimental stages, site-specific venues as well large established stages as the Danish Royal Theatre.

 

As well as working as an actress, director and creator, I am the artistic director of the free theatre group danskdansk that produces plays addressing issues of diversity, equality and identity and reaches out to a diverse audience. The recent play »Queens«, which I created with playwright Camara Lundestad Joof, has now gone into the early process of being developed for tv.

I am currently in pre-production with the short film »Watch« starring Ditte Hansen and Nukaka Coster-Waldau. It will go into production in August. »Watch« will be my debut as a film director as well as a screenwriter. 

 

I am a passionate advocate for diversity as well as female driven stories and a firm believer that diversity brings new perspectives, originality and creativity.
